In episode 346 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked if the factors that influence getting into the GMB 3-pack are the same and if it also influences others in the general listings.
The exact question was:
Hi Guys, as usual you provided a GREAT answer to a question I asked last week, so thank you, thank you, thank you again for all that you do to “”give back”” (smile) . . . I was wondering, do the same factors that influence getting into the GMB 3-Pack, like proximity to searcher, GMB profile optimization, quantity of reviews, quality of reviews, GMB Posts, backlinks, etc, also influence the position of the other businesses in the “”General”” GMB listings after you click on the “”View all”” link at the bottom of the 3-Pack, and what is the order of importance and effectiveness for those factors? . . . As always, your help is VERY much appreciated (smile)
